Showing Energy the Way

Victor Carrillo – Senior Consultant


Victor Carrillo, former commissioner, Railroad Commission of Texas, helped lead the state agency that oversees the Texas energy sector. Formerly, he was a petroleum geologist/geophysicist, assistant city attorney, Abilene City Councilman, and Taylor County Judge. Mr. Carrillo has many years of oil and gas industry exploration and production experience.

Carrillo says: “As I transition out of almost eight years of public service regulating the oil, gas, and pipeline sector in the largest oil and gas producing state in the nation, I look forward to entering the private sector to help generate jobs, economic opportunity, and domestic energy security for our nation. I am honored to join Don and Ted and look forward to partnering with their professional and successful business that provides essential services for the oil, gas, and pipeline sector.”
